Two best friends. One night that changes it all.

Nicola Samuels kissed the sexiest man she knows—her best friend. The man who veers away from commitment as though it’s scarier than a pit of snakes. The man who, she believes, has only ever seen her as his backpacking travel buddy.

The man she hasn’t spoken to since The Kiss.

But Nicola’s ready for the next step in life—career, marriage, family. And she knows just the man who will fit by her side—the man who makes her laugh and her heart sing. Todd Haber, her commitment-phobe BBF and the best kisser she’s ever met.

Can Nicola find a way to tame the untameable? Or will her intentions send her best friend fleeing, breaking her heart in the process?

Find out in this standalone romance from New York Times bestselling romance author Jean Oram and the sixth addictive book in the hit Blueberry Springs series.

She grew up in a town of 100 (cats and dogs not included) and owns one pair of high heels which she has worn approximately three times in the past twenty years.

Her life contains an ongoing school theme having grown up in an old school house, then becoming a ski instructor in the Canadian Rockies, then going on to marry a teacher and become a high school librarian. She now runs a fundraising committee for her daughter's school.

Jean lives in Canada with her husband and two kids. She can often be found outdoors hiking up mountains, playing Red Light, Green Light with kids on the soccer field, racing her dog on her bicycle--sometimes the dog lets her win--or inside writing her next novel.

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jean Oram!

One woman. Two men. One meddling small town.

Raised by her older sister in the small town of Blueberry Springs, all Beth Wilkinson wants is to create a family so big she’ll never be alone. Things are going great until her accountant fiancé, Oz, experiences a family trauma, forcing him to rethink everything from his own career to their nuptial plans—leaving Beth alone.

As Beth works to rediscover her former bold and independent self in hopes of reattracting Oz, she catches the eye of the charming new city doctor, Nash. Not only does he see her as she’d like to be seen, but he knows exactly what he wants from life—and that includes Beth.

Torn between the two men, as well as two versions of herself, Beth discovers that love and dreams are much more complicated than they seem.

A sweet romance that will have readers wondering who Beth should choose.

Be my Valentine, Blueberry Springs.

Three short stories of sweet, clean romance from the Blueberry Springs series. Forbidden kisses, tough choices, and a question that will change the future of one of the town’s favorite couples.

This set includes the latest standalone short story romances from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jean Oram: Whiskey and Gumdrop Hearts, Vodka and Chocolate Hearts, and Tequila and Candy Hearts.

Tequila and Candy Hearts
One new job. One chance to prove herself. And one crush on the man she most definitely shouldn’t.

Nicola Samuels has spent the past two years traveling the world with her best friend Todd Haber and is ready to settle down with her first real career as Blueberry Springs’s community planner. Eager to make her mark on the small town, she creates the first annual Valentine’s Day Love Extravaganza. Thinking she is immune to the holiday, she hires a man dressed as Cupid, not expecting to fall under the spell of the holiday…

But when Cupid strikes, will she kiss the man she shouldn’t—or will she hide her true feelings in order to prevent ruining the one thing she can’t risk losing?

Vodka and Chocolate Hearts
One happy couple. One friend with a not-so-secret crush. One Valentine’s Day that could change it all.

Months ago, Amber Thompson returned to her hometown of Blueberry Springs with hunky newscaster Russell Peaks on her arm. But lately her boyfriend has been spending more and more time in the city as well as talking about moving back. No problem; Amber can work as a mail-order database lackey anywhere there’s internet—as long as Russell asks her to come along.

When the town’s first Valentine’s Day Love Extravaganza gets underway, Amber’s boyfriend gets held up in the city, causing her best friend Scott Malone to pick up his slack. Will Scott’s good intentions be noticed for what they truly are and create a Blueberry Springs love triangle, or will Russell find a way to redeem himself in time to reclaim his girlfriend?

Note to readers: This short story can be read before Amber's novel Vodka and Chocolate Drops.

Whiskey and Gumdrop Hearts
One woman. One man. One question.

Award-winning baker Mandy Mattson is tired of feeling as though she’s always leaning on her boyfriend Frankie Smith to make her dreams come true. Struggling to expand her new restaurant in hopes of becoming more financially secure, she doesn’t know what to do when her boyfriend asks for the one thing she doesn’t have— more time to spend with him.

When Frankie runs out of patience, Mandy finds herself having to choose between two dreams. Will she make the right choice? Or will she find a way to have her cake and eat it too?

Note to readers: This standalone short story is an ‘after story’ from Whiskey and Gumdrops. It can be read as a standalone, but does contain spoilers for that novel. It contains no cliffhangers.
A brand new, irresistible series about finding love in unexpected places by New York Times bestselling romance author Jean Oram. Come fall in love...

Sometimes exes come in handy.

Devon Mattson’s week couldn’t get much worse. Not only is he fake engaged to the sexy woman who broke his heart (then stomped on it for good measure) a decade ago, but his goal of saving his hometown of Blueberry Springs has become dependent on the two of them playing nicely.

Olivia Carrington isn’t happy to have her ex back in her life. She’s spent ten long years regretting how they ended things back in college and she’s worked hard to move on. She should be focusing on saving her family’s company, not on the handsome, helpful, fun-loving Devon who has just offered her a lifeline she can’t resist…

Tied together by mutual need, will they ruin each other’s chance of success or will a fake engagement help them overcome their painful past and lead them back to love once again?

This is the first book in the Veils and Vows series and it can be read out of series order and as a standalone. The couple, Olivia and Devon, also have a prequel novella, The Promise, which can be read before or after this book for readers who want more about Olivia and Devon’s past.

When falling in love isn’t part of the contract.

Techie Ethan Mattson may have married chef Lily Harper but he didn’t vow to love her. His only commitment was to hand her half of his business assets and a year later file for divorce while saving a tidy sum on taxes.
Little does Ethan know that the pretty woman from his past needs so much more than just a business. She needs protection and love, the two things he feels too broken to offer.

Chef Lily Harper grew up tagging along after Ethan who saved her from bullies, mud puddles and being an outsider. When Lily flees a nasty ex who won’t take a hint, she comes running home to Blueberry Springs, striking a deal with her childhood protector, Ethan. If he marries her, she’ll take his restaurant off his hands, giving him more time to spend on his dream tech business. Not only that, but she’ll finally earn her way into owning a thriving restaurant. It seems like an ideal agreement…until she begins to fall in love.

Will Lily be able to show Ethan how to love again or will their hidden histories ruin their recipe for love? Find out in this irresistible new book from New York Times bestselling author Jean Oram.
